The Vertical Tumblr — where like Kodansha, Vertical answers fan questions — has some disheartening news in a recent post. They were asked about sales of Limit by Keiko Suenobu. Unfortunately, they haven’t been good, so
unless something changes we will most likely not reprint this series. Furthermore, I do not think we will pursue more Suenobu works, or many shojo works in the future.
I found the series uneven, but I’m glad I got a chance to check it out, and I hate the idea of one title’s poor performance meaning less shojo overall.
Anyway, if you’re interested in Limit, you should buy the books sooner rather than later, because they’re unlikely to be reprinted. And if you want more chances taken on shojo titles, there might be additional benefit.Similar Posts: Vertical Brings Paradise Kiss Back Into Print § Finally!
